Combining 3 ScalarVolume/DICOM Files into One?

Hello, I have an MRI scan whose sagittal, coronal, and transverse DICOM files are separated into 3 files. Or rather, each one of the files is high-dimensional only in one direction, and the other two directions are super sparse. Is there a way I can combine the three files so I end up with a single ScalarVolume/DICOM file of high quality in each direction?

An additional problem is that each of the files has a different number of 2D slices (320, 384, and 272).

Any tips are much appreciated. Nor YouTube, nor Google is returning any useful tutorials.


This kind of imaging protocol makes sense if the images are only viewed by humans and they only review the acquired 2D image slices (they don’t do any 3D reconstruction). Sadly, this is still standard clinical practice at many hospitals. See more information in this topic:

Thanks Andras, I did what you described in the linked post - used the 3 volumes individually to create a high-resolution segment. It’s a bit painstaking but it worked as intended. Cheers.

Hi. Do you have a code snippet for this? I’m curious to see its results

Hi Mauro, I just did it by hand. Switching between the three master views and painting in my segmentation manually (using Grow from Seed and then some polishing)
